Sterling Silver 925 –Gold Electroplated Care
You’ll probably be wearing these pieces a lot. An easy way to keep them shining is by taking a bowl with a mixture of warm water and mild dish detergent and letting the jewelry soak for a few minutes. Once soaked, rinse it with water and dry it with a polishing cloth.
For tarnish and smudges, only use a polishing cloth. If you need to buy one, polishing cloths are available at jewelers and pharmacies shops.
For the times you are not wearing your jewelry, we recommend keeping them individually in a soft pouch or bag to keep them on compartment (we suggest to use silica gel packets to help absorb moisture from the air). This surely will prevent your pieces from getting scratched or tangled and it will also reduce the potentially harmful exposure to outside elements.
How long does gold cover last? Since you want to wear your jewelry daily, it will depend on how thick the gold is plated. If it is very thick, like Vermeil plating 100 micro-inches, it could last a lifetime but If it is a thin plate, with no proper care it could wear off in a short time. That’s why we have three options for gold coverings. Gold Electroplated-old thickness up to 7 microinches, Gold Plated Gold Thickness 20-30 microinches & Gold Vermeil Gold Thickness +100 microinches.
Gold Electroplated-is so much sensitive than the other gold covering techniques.

Storage and Travel
To have your jewelry ready to wear, it is best to keep each piece separate to keep it away from tangling and tarnishing.
For sterling silver jewelry, we recommend using an airtight plastic bag to keep moisture out.
For yellow and rose gold plated jewelry, you can just keep each piece in a soft pouch.
